The Scientists were an influential rock band formed in Perth, Australia in 1978 led by Kim Salmon. The band had two primary incarnations: the Perth-based punk band of the late 1970s and the Sydney/London-based swamp rock band of the 1980s. The Scientists were much more influential than their minimal commercial success would indicate, lending their influence to artists such as Mudhoney and New York's downtown indie scene of the early 1990s.
They were active from 1978 until 1987, then from 2007.
